place at the wrong time. the inmate had been assaulted and my defense to them was telling them i was in the area and i was just pushed out of the way as the inmate was trying to get away from the person that assault him. >> bullock was anxiously awaiting a hearing with the prison's administrative law judge to plead his case. in the meantime, he let us know that while ad seg meant losing his television, the location of his cell at least made it possible to keep up with current events. >> this cell right here in front of the police station, to me, is the best cell on this range due to the fact that you get a lot of movement. you see who is coming in and out and inmates, c.o.s, good scoops on who's dating who with the c.o.s, who got into it with who, whoever it may be. >> so do you know what happened between brad and jen? >> brad and jen? yeah. they're divorced. >> three days later, bullock was about to face his own life-altering event, his hearing on the assault charge. >> we're coming up to see the inmate bullock to see the committee today. he's being charged with a serious rule v
for managing park concessionaires so much of model used by the defense department and its base exchanges and recreational facilities and to pursue bonding and revolving loans. i would like to mention fenty the significant impact of sequestration from the budgetary cuts to the national park service and its related bureaus. sequestration was designed to be inflexible damaging and indiscriminate and it is. it is undermining the work we need to do one or many fronts. it's increasing increasing our backlogs and eroding our workforce and differing important work. to conclude the national park service will continue to pursue new and creative ways to address its funding needs and i want to thank our many partners who are here who have come to us with these ideas and i appreciate the support of congress to resolve this extraordinary challenge. thank you. >> director jarvis thank you very much. because of the numbers of senators here i'm just going to ask one question of director jarvis to get us started and recognize my colleagues. director jarvis or decades the park service has recommended expan

applauded the defense team after the verdict, neither the defense or prosecution spoke directly to reporters. via twitter, wikileaks said dangerous national security extremism from the obama administration. the reporter that broke edward snowden's story said manning's treatment seemed to explain why the former contractor fled the country. >> reporter: there was no immediate response from the obama administration to the manning verdict. he now faces maximum sentence of 136 years in prison, which is effectively a life sentence. that sentencing phase begins tomorrow, and it is expected to take several weeks, bret. >> catherine herridge live at fort meade. thank you. >>> another indication tonight of major problems for the veterans administration. it has to do with the construction of new va facilities. correspondent alicia acuna is in aurora, colorado with tonight's edition of it's all your money. >> just overwrought with cost overruns and broken deadlines, and that's not unusual for government projects, but these are hospitals. >> reporter: construction of a new veterans administration hospita
to that part and could face up to 20 years in prison for that. in terms of aiding the enemy, the defense argues that bradley manning, of course, was a whistle-blower, according to the defense, that he was trying to reveal abuses and crimes actually committed by the u.s. military in the wars in both iraq and afghanistan. legal experts say the prosecution may have a hard time proving aiding the enemy in this case because you have to prove intent and although some of these documents ended up in the hands of former al qaeda leader osama bin laden no evidence whatsoever, none presented during the trial, that bradley manning knew that those documents would end up in his hands. in fact, one legal expert, military legal expert told us the only case he remembers was back in the civil war where a union soldier was charged with aiding the enemy when he leaked the position of union troops to a newspaper in alexandria, virginia. >>> all workers have been accounted for after explosions rocked a propane plant in florida overnight. eight people taken to the hospital and no word on what ignited the explosions.
was so obvious there was no defense to. it and if he is sentenced to the maximum, he is facing 20 years. he kept a slight credit because he was abused in the pre- trial confinement and gave hymn credit for a couple hundred days. we start with 20 years and then get to serious charges. here is significance. bradley manning argues he didn't reveal them to the enemy but the woky leaks and under supreme court law wikileaks can't be published because if they are a journalistic entitties, then the person who gives it to the journalist and the journalist who reveals it, the person who gives it cannot be prosecuted for what the journalist did. the judge may push the law in one direction or another. we haven't sewn a case like this. norm willy the charge is against the journalist and here it is against the person who gave it to journalist. >> kathryn harris might have news for us. >> with an explanation. >> yeah, we just had information that came out of the courtroom by that information center and what we are told that on the first count, the most source count bradley manning was found not guilty
or what the defense said. as far as whether private manning is traitor, that should not be band aided back. it has a unique stigma to it. unless someone is going to prosecute him for treason he shouldn't be labeled a traitor. i think the claim he's a whistle blower is off based. he may have had what he considers good intentions but at the end of the day it's not especially to every citizen to decide whether to share the count country's crown jewels with others. >> that raises the question. barbara, i don't know you've done a lot of reporting. 750,000 pages were handed over to wikileakss and a lot of that posted on the internet. a lot of it was classifieied secret. it waunt higher classification. based on everything you've heard, how much real damage to u.s. national security was done as a result of this? >> this has been the debate all along and continues to be the debate in the snowden case. how much damage? people will tell you that bradley manning leaked a lot of information but it was information intelligence at a point in time. something that happened in iraq. something that happened

's trying to go on the offense and put republicans on defense. by narrowing it down as he did, he's trying to make it a clearer choice. certainly republicans are coming up with their reasons why they don't want to do it, and it gets back to the fact they want it coupled with other programs, other attempts to overhaul the tax code. so it will be interesting to see whether and how long republicans can just say they don't want this. i think, you know, we've seen this sort of play happen before in washington where the president goes on offense. he gets democrats or republicans back on their heels and they come up with something else. we see this play out until a deadline. >> and the president referred to when i think some people believed that republicans are at least a part of the party back on its heels as it relates to obama care. i want to the play what ted cruz said in an interview, i believe it was yesterday, as the president noted 40 attempts, but it's more than that, to repeal obama care. let's play ted cruz. >> this is our last and best chance to defund it. stand up, use the constituti
enrollment fees the house armed services committee, of which i'm a member, and other defense committees have declined to grant the authority for these fee increases. my amendment would do nothing more than ensure that the fund in this fact are not made available to implement any new enrollment fees in the tricare for life program. year after year we hear from the defense department that health care costs of our soldiers and veterans are spiraling out of control and tricare is crippling the d.o.d. with its rising costs yet for the past two dwhreerks pentagon has found a way to reprogram hundreds of millions of dollars from defense health accounts to higher priorities. these reprogramming actions totaled $70 million last career in 2012, and $500 million in the -- in the prior year in 2011. explained that the surplus was due to uncertainty about medical installation and health care use and the impact of continual benefit changes and efficiency initiatives. if there is uncertainty about costs, the assertion cannot be made that added fees are necessary for even our most senior veterans. d.o.d.'s

defense. this is dunce-worthy. we want to get it started with the good mayor. wellot such a good mayor and on the other hand, we have weiner last night, weiner, refused to answer a direct question fm new york daily news about whether he still se sexting women on-line, he said, quott, you can quibble abo beginnings, middles and ends, but what we're talking abouttis over a year ago. it one thing to be a creep but to be obnoxious narsistic creep? weiner's arrogance deservee a dunce cap. the mayor. filner against, is hanging on spite calls to resign from 7 of 9 san diego city council members,hairwoman of democrati national committee, senator diane feinstein. there not one but two recalls underway in san diego against filner. you would think he would start feeling not very huggable at this point. but his diluton earns him, we don't oft give two at a time, but he is the winner. and weiner stays in the race though. in every day, despite cal to step down fm democratic strategist david axelrod who said he is just taking you of space, and peter king also demanding he step down. and the clintons,
on the same day congress was debating the defense authorization bill and an amendment that would block all u.s. aid to egypt. >> we are reviewing our obligations under the law and are consulting with congress about the way forward. given the current situation in egypt, we do not believe it is appropriate to move forward with the delivery of f-16s at this time. >> reporter: u.s. official sources tell fox that the egyptian military's not all that worried about not receiving those f-16s at this point in time. they believe that eventually something will be worked out and that those f-16s will be delivered. rick: okay. so what about reaction from the egyptian military? >> reporter: well, the egyptian army is calling for nationwide protests in egypt tomorrow to counter the demonstrations staged by the muslim brotherhood of late which is pushing for the release of president morsi whose family claims that he was kidnapped by the army. there's no word where president morsi is at this time. egyptian opposition groups have criticized the administration's wishy washy approach to the situation. >> i feel

viable defenses, what could he face what penalties could it carry as well? >> reporter: of course aiding the enemy is the most serious of charges he faces and for that he could get life in prison but there are a variety of other charges that could land him in jail for some time. manning also charged with eight charges under the espionage act, five theft charges, and two more of computer fraud. all of those federal charges. each one could get him up to 10 years in prison. on top of that there are five military counts of violating regulations punishable up to two years. manning chose to have a judge decide the case instead of a jury. it is entirely up to her now. the judge tentatively scheduled a sentencing hearing on wednesday. that could run for several weeks since each side has more than 20 potential witnesses. jamie. >> will be interesting to see if manning speaks on that. thanks so much. bill: support for anthony weiner dropping like a stone amid the latest fallout from his newest texting scandal. the former congressman held on to second place in the days after the latest story broke

defenses, don't you think this is something that we can pour not only in defense but other areas as well? i believe it is. texas can switch to a p.b.m. contract. this is no chump change. y time draws to a close, the challenges facing independent and community pharmacist are great, but the important roles they play are greater. it is where we can look forward to solutions that matter. i did not come to washington, d.c. simply to watch things happen and to wonder why. i came to be part of the solution. like you, mr. speaker, we are part of the freshman class believing that this is the place that people look for to make this country continually the greatest country on earth. and the way they do that is look at commonsense legislation. they look at commonsense solutions that affect them every day. for many, many people. and especially in my home of northeast georgia. place.harmacies is a they are the places where senior citizens come and as i have watched many times the pharmacies where i go to, my own or not, it is the pharmacies where i watched the other day, where i went in and a sweet littl
the constitution says they have to have a defense that we can't afford apparently? i met yesterday with maryland district court judges, about eight of them, and they raised this issue as one of critical importance and one of the judges, a reagan appointee, was obviously very animated at how we were undermining the very essence of the judicial system. surely no one on this floor intends to do that. at the defense department 650,000 vifflian workers are already -- civilian workers are already being furloughed two days a month. that's an effective cut and pay by 20%. the hardworking people whom we rely to maintain the national security of our country. on july 2 i visited with pax ian defense works from and talked with those who were forced to stay at home without pay. they were concerned about their family's finances but, mr. speaker, these hardworking and patriotic public servants were far more worried about support for our troops on the field on friday when many are forced to stay at home. they can't legally come to work and volunteer their time. the sequester is hurting morale and putting our na
. budgetary time of austerity, w.i.c. was included in the across-the-board cuts in defense and discretionary programs under sequester. snap was excluded because it's a entitlement like social security and medicare. but w.i.c. was included in the sequester because it is an sniment. as if the cuts in sequester weren't bad enough, the house agriculture appropriations bill now cuts the program even further by more than $500 million. the 7.3% cut to w.i.c. in this bill could result in over 200,000 pregnant mothers and infants losing nutritious food. even factoring in the reserve fund, 55,000 moms and kids will go without nutrition that they need. it is sad that the republican-controlled house of representatives is cutting vital health and development programs for pregnant and nursing mothers and their very young children, while at the same time they find billions of dollars to send overseas in a wasteful war in afghanistan. madam speaker, during my series of end hunger now speeches, there's been one unifying theme i believe puts us on the path to end hunger now. that theme is presidential leaders
. just last month the judge agreed with the defense and ordered prosecutors if they had it to hand over specific evidence, documents relating to specific damage to national security. >> okay. chris, thank you. jake, here's my other big question because really if you read the papers this morning, the headlines, this could be precedent setting for information that is leaked that is given to investigative journalists. let me read you something. this is what we saw on wikileaks. they tweeted bradley manning's convictions relate to espionage. basic guide to honest reportage, manning has not been found guilty but he has been convicted of supplying information to the press. i mean, are there -- it goes both ways, i suppose, because he's acquitted of the heaviest offense that could have sent him to life in prison yet at the same time are journalists fully breathing that sigh of relief? >> well, as you say, the charge of aiding the enemy because of the idea, the concept that by providing information national security, confidential or secret information to the press the enemy can read it. the ide

with the prosecution and defense having their final say in the fcc's case against the former golden vice president today. the s.e.c., which accused tourre to follow the documents. they hammered away at the 43-year-old's credibility by highlighting e-mails to and from tourre as far as marketing materials he put together. the s.e.c. maintaining this to be critical information, tourre did not tell investors. he made a billion on the bet, while the other investors lost a billion. now tourre's team countering in its close listened to the testimony. they hammered away at the credibility of the s.e.c.'s witnesses by poining out inconsistencies in their depositions and testimonies on the stand. tourre's lawyer telling the jury the french native is in court because he refused to yield to an overbearing government agency that overreached, ruined his career, and invaded his personal life by using e-mails sent to his girlfriend to bolster its case. jury deliberations begin tomorrow. both sides have a great deal riding on the income. tourre, who is now a doctoral in economics, could be banned from the securiti
, using tears go, and ultimately acting if self-defense if they need to. some of the speculation has been that these protesters have been armed, some have been concealing weapons and the situations have become way too dangerous, not only for the residents nearby, but disruptive to the country. the concern is that security would ultimately lead to more deaths. and that is, perhaps, why we're seeing a spike in visitors from the international community, including the german foreign minister, and more importantly, the visit from the republican senators, perhaps delivering the message that violence or more security crackdowns is not the way to try to resolve this. it has to be a political solution, to try to bring the supporters back into the political process. >> ayman mohyeldin live for us in cairo. thank you. >>> coming up, doubling down. the president takes on republicans over how many jobs the keystone pipeline would actually create. but now some say the president has sent a cryptic message that they mean an approval of that pipeline. hey linda! what are you guys doing? having some fiber!
. they called at this time national defense education act. it was all about america's defense. and what they said was, we will loan money to student loans across -- students across america to go to college. i think that their rationale was sound. if more americans went to college and got educated we would have the engineers and scientists we need to make this a strong nation from a defense point of view and from our economy point of view. so i thank the russians for launching sputnik and i thank the congress for creating the national defense education act because a kid from east stlooth st. louis, illinois, whose parents had eighth grade educations had a chance to go to college and he's standing here today in the united states senate. it was a good deal, too. the national defense education act said you don't have to pay it back until after you graduate, ten equal payments at 3% interest. i remember these because i was frightened to death in 1969 when i finished law school and added up all my student loans and they said to me you owe $8,500. i went home to my wife and i said we're doomed

the secrets with the enemy. the defense claimed manning first set out to reveal abuses by the u.s. military in iraq. in a pretrial statement to the court, manning admitted he leaked this classified video of an apache helicopter attack in iraq that killed a number of insurgents and two innocent civilians and said he was troubled by the american crew joking about the killings. >> the most alarming aspect of the video to me, however, was seemingly delightful bloodlust that they appeared to have. for me, this seems similar to a child torturing ants with magnifying glasses." >> reporter: wikileaks owner julian assange says their owners will fight the conviction on the charges. >> it's a serious abuse, and it will mean the end of national security journalism in the united states as we know it. >> reporter: and legal experts predict manning's convictions will have a chilling effect on future leakers. >> the government is very, very serious about protecting the status of classified information, and people who disseminate it are playing with fire. >> all right. >> that was nbc's jim miklaszewski rep
in developing. trying to work through how they approach the issue spirited defense of the questions between detroit and its creditors that is really something they' going to have to work out with its creditors. gerri: workout with its creditors, but the e of the day it's going to be on our backs as taxpayers. here is the real threat. i mean, detroit, yes to mombasa chicago. and cities and municipities considering an obamacare bailt. detroit, chigo, stockton, the list goes on. like a snowball rolling downhill here. it spells disaster n only for obamacare by taxpayers. what could the cost b? >> the cost could be enormous. ready spending two and a half trillion of the first full ten years of obamacare. imagine instead of having 30 million new workers in the expansion we have something that looks like 40. another 30%. the cost is staggering. what is interesting is the first person to put their finger on this is a democratic governor, former tennessee governor. rly in the debate he said we have seen this in tennessee. not going to work out well and now here we are. gerri: but look at this. these
passed important legislation, the defense appropriations bill. this bill prohibits furloughs on employees serving our department of defense in fiscal year 2014. these employees are now in their third week of furloughs. this week we heard from undersecretary of defense comptroller bob hale about the adverse impacts which are expected to worsen if furloughs continue. his message made clear the harm furloughs have already had on our force readiness. mr. wittman: he echo what had i am hearing from my constituents who i talk to on a daily basis. these people are dispointed and frustrated they cannot support the war fighter and are fearful of an unknown future. while it may be too late for the 11 days of furlough through september, congress has the opportunity, and i believe the obligation, to get this important provision, prohibiting furloughs, signed into law as soon as possible. and i urge the senate to join the house in passing this important measure. and with that, mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. for what purpose does t
priorities by funding defense. that's unacceptable, he won't do that. >> steve rattner, what do we see regarding this struggle that we haven't seen before? >> we have two potential government shutdowns. one, the congress has to do something to pass a continuing resolution or something else to fund the government past september 30th, or else it shuts down. and then sometime in november we probably hit the debt ceiling limit and the government can't borrow money so it can't spend money. the administration, among the many things they've tried to do this past week, which i think are worthy, to get people refocused on the economy and get people focused due to the lack of responsibility on capitol hill, we could be setting for another set of cliffs and deadline, the same kind of things that, as jack pointed out, are destructive for the economy. >> so let's fold this into the conversation. there are mixed messages when it comes to how americans are dealing with the overall economy. a survey finds 80% of adults at some point in their lives deal with near poverty, joblessness and dependence on
be for them. the army judge will spend weeks hearing from defense and prosecution witnesses. the government is expected to provide a classified assessment of the damage created by manning's disclosures. they are also expected to see the lawyer for bradley manning continue to portray his client as a patriot who followed his conscience. expressing gratitude to his legal team and supporters. our next caller in taylor, michigan, on the democrats line. hi, don. caller: hello. tank you for c-span. -- thank you for c-span. gave anom line is they oath to the constitution, nobody else. all he did was show e-mails. thousands of people are reading them. biden said something about them. the thing is, you have to think about our forefathers. weren't they all whistleblowers on the british government? they knew the wrongs of those british government, so that is why they wrote the constitution. give their oath to the constitution, not to an administration or a corporation. manning to me, they are heroes. bush, clinton, obama -- they all lied, they all said they were going to do one thing. look at the nsa,
faces the possibility of up to 136 years in prison. both prosecutors and defense attorneys will start calling witnesses today to testify as to manning's motives behind his disclosure and what impact his actions had on national security. manning's defense continues to argue that their client was simply naive in leaking information but harbored no evil intent. manning was trying to spark a conversation about foreign policy. meanwhile, the senate judiciary committee is holding a hearing today to ask some top administration officials about the united states domestic surveillance programs. number to officials from justice, the fbi, the nsa are all expected to appear. senators also going to hear from the top lawyer at the office of the director of national intelligence and a former fisa court judge. last week, the house narrowly voted down a measure to essentially shutter the nsa's secret collection of phone records but said of patrick leahy, the chairman of the judiciary committee has a bill pending that would put limitations on what the government can collect and beef up congressional and
at the polls. however, in his defense, governor mccrory may not be entirely aware of this because as he admitted on friday, he still hasn't read some portions of the bill. and lest you have any doubts things have not changed as much as the chief justice would have you believe, look no further than one weekend commentator explaining what he believes is the real reason for detroit's bankruptcy. >> you have 3% fourth graders reading at the national math standards. 47% of detroit residents are functionally illiterate. 79% of detroit children are born to unmarried mothers. they don't have a physical problem, they have a cultural collapse. >> the more things change, the more they stay the same. i'm joined now by goldie taylor and professor james peterson, director of africanen studies at lehigh university. professor peterson, let's begin with these two bills. was this not precisely what ruth bader ginsberg feared when he she wrote last month a governing political coalition has an incentive to prevent changes in the existing balance of voting power? >> that is exactly right. and people should
his legal defense was trying to clear the decks and hope that they could avoid these more serious convictions which do involve very serious sentencing time, depending on what the judge decides. >> that's right. i mean the charges that he's pled guilty to already carry a sentence of up to 20 years and now there are these charges on top of that. but one of the things that manning's lawyers were trying to do in entering this plea was to show that manning to some degree was taking more responsibility for his actions and that could also influence the judge's thinking when she decides what sentence to impose on him. >> how does this case fit in with -- fit within the larger rubric of how this administration, this justice department, this pentagon has approached these national security cases. >> well, it is a historic verdict, even though manning was acquitted on the aiding the enemy charge because historically the espionage act charges have been brought against spies and against traitors and not against people who leaked information to the media with no ill intent. >> so if you call him
. "the washington post" is reporting that attorney general holder he hopes that his legacy is a defense of civil rights. but my question for you, ma'am, is will it be congress's legacy, as well? >> well, i certainly hope it's congress's legacy. i have to tell you after the supreme court came back with the decision against voting rights, you know, talking to some of my colleagues that have been in congress for a long time, they're encouraged we can do a fix here that would be bipartisan as a new member of congress only here three years, it's hard for me to imagine that, but i will continue to be hopeful and i think you know under john connyers can' leadership, we will be able to get the job done. >> i know the british are generally regarded as more responsive towards the notion of irony. doesn't it seem ironic to you that the supreme court decides knock down sections of the voting rights act and within a matter of weeks, this north carolina governor signs a bill that introduces the most severe oppressive you know kind of ideas proposals that will suppress the vote? >> well, i guess now h
? he wants to be this great champion of national defense. what does he want to do? shut down military bases in kentucky? what this debate really is about is that in order to have enough money for national defense -- which i think is a priority for the government -- you have to be willing to cut spending in other places. >>steve: who's right on this? and is this debate good for the republican party? let's talk to our republican strategist brad todd. good morning. what did you make of that give-and-take? you're the king of bacon. no, you're the king of bacon! >> i halfway expect at any moment we're going to hear more schoolyard talk than i hear from a three and four-year-old at a preschool. it's did not, did too. i think in the end it is a good debate for the republican party to have in the open. it would be worse for it to fester in the back room. >>steve: it started a couple of days ago where chris christie who apparently is okay with an n.s.a. spying program talked a little bit about how there is this strain of libertarianism going through both parties right now making big headlines.
the defense beat, you kind of take it piece mail. you spend time with the people who made these tanks, you fly and osprey, you train and you do all of these things but you never see it come together and work together in what they call combined arms, where everyone is supporting each other. when you watch them up close and the marines are trying to take an objective and they have to coordinate all these moving pieces, and the claimant -- any equipment is moving, you get a good sense of the scale of this and the in normandy and complexity of modern warfare complexity ofd modern warfare. people tend to think that with satellite systems that the fog of war has dissipated, but when you are out there and you are close up, you see that it really hasn't that much. there is still a lot of and the ambiguity on of the battlefield and if you don't match the right weapon system with the right target, it doesn't go well. shooting without maneuvering is a waste of ammo, maneuvering without shooting is suicide. you get a sense of how true that is when you see all the elements trying to come together to take a
